I have a friend/roommate with some interesting dietary restrictions. Any help?
Apparently her condition is some sort of pre-diabetic one, and the limitations are similar to those of someone on the Atkins diet (although she is not). So, no carbs - meaning not only no bread but also really no fruit or things with sugar. Apparently berries are ok because they have lots of fiber.
Additionally, she has recently been diagnosed with high cholestorol, probably because one of the only breakfast foods that she can prepare easily and quickly are eggs. So she's trying to steer clear of foods with any cholestorol in them. So far, she has been pretty much eating oatmeal and this
truly awful concoction. As a lover of ingredients and food, it kills me to watch her do this. She has also expressed a desire to try different things, but is not a terribly adventurous cook. So I'm specifically looking for easy, quick things that would be relatively easy to make.
To be honest, I sort of doubt the validity of some of her restrictions (personally, I would have gotten a second opinion), but that's not the point. I'm just trying to give her some suggestions.
Additionally, I think she is going to see a nutritionist as well, who can hopefully give her some more specific pointers and ideas. Until then, hope me AskMe you're my only help, etc. etc. etc.
